# 411 Fleet ships
08-08-2012, 12:22 AM
So I had the unfortunate purchase of a fleet heavy cruiser. Thought 'hey, I liked it grinding! Might like it now'. Well tier one ships are garbage, they don't reflect the cost. 20$ for the rubbish that is the fleet heavy cruiser is an insult. These ships either need to cost one fleet module or reflect the cost. For 5 dollars more I could have gotten the escort carrier. Why charge outrageous prices for the junk of the fleet ships?

Also change it so when I press U in space it goes to my ship tab... not my character one...

I see most of the fleet ships more like a way to fly a shipskin you really liked at an VA-compareable level. Exactly what Retrofits are good for. (there are exceptions)
My wife got pretty crazy about some of the ships, she will buy at least one ship from every Tier available.

I'm still undecided which ships finally to buy, the Fleet Armitage will be pretty obvious for my Tac, before today's blog I even thought about the Fleet Oddy.

Big advantage with some Fleet ships (those for 200K) is, you can grind them pretty quick, only takes some provisions, no cash involved.
For the Fleet Versions you need 1 or 4 FSMs. One is farmed ingame relatively quick via Dilithium (atm it's roughly 40 ZEN per Character per day), 4 are still doable (or just buy from Exchange, sometimes you can get very lucky).

The Fleetships finally made me more comfortable with playing another toon or two till VA.
I like flying a ship with a good, narrowed down build. Currently thinking about a Tac, which will fly a Sciship later.

It's the same as the 2yr freebie if you already have it. If not then yea, have at it XD.

I can only imagine how much more worse off the 200,000 version is. They don't make money off of it.

I'll just face the perils of the galaxy in my trusty runabout, thank you very much.
Starfleet honors the memory of Captain Phineas C. Corkscrew who, in 2153, invented the revolutionary Corkscrew Maneuver, which has ever since made it possible for starships to move up and down in space by turning at a 45-degree angle.

They have a compareable statalocation to any Admiralship buyable for Dilithium (aka "Free By"-ships), which is more than enough to do any kind of PVE.

For PvP Min/Maxing you might consider Fleetversions.

Advantage for your up to 20 bucks is usually:
1 Console
10% more Hull and Shieldmodifier

Nothing which makes or breaks the possibility to play the game.
So don't buying Fleetversions is actually "a way to fly a shipskin you really liked at an VA-compareable level".

Sometimes I buy ships for cash, because I like the way they play.
But sometimes I wished to fly a ship, because of their looks. Before S6 this made it harder for others to play with me. Now I can finally switch my ship, and be fine.

I agree on the Fleet Heavy Retro. Its not even a +10% like others.

But not all tier 1 is garbage. The Fleet Patrol escort is a very nice upgrade of the Patrol Escort. Well worth it.
